Joe Locke & Kit Connor in Young Love 'Heartstopper' Series Trailer
"You ever feel like you're only doing things because everyone else is, and you're scared to change?" Netflix has revealed the official trailer for an indie series titled Heartstopper, a cute LGBTQ romance series based on the young adult graphic novel series. "Love meets doubt. Fear meets joy. Boy meets boy. Heartstopper - an eight chapter story about life, love and everything in between." Teenagers Charlie and Nick discover their unlikely friendship might be something more as they navigate school and young love in this coming-of-age series. Joe Locke and Kit Connor star as Charlie and Nick, respectively, and the rest of the ensemble cast includes Joseph Balderrama, Sebastian Croft, Yasmin Finney, Fisayo Akinade, Jenny Walser, Chetna Pandya, William Gao, Rhea Norwood, Cormac Hyde-Corrin, and Alan Turkington. This looks like it has some nice style and good vibes - and doesn't look as cheesy as most Netflix series usually do.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Alice Oseman's Heartstopper, direct from YouTube:
Boy meets boy. Boys become friends. Boys fall in love. When gentle Charlie and rugby-loving Nick meet at secondary school, they quickly discover that their unlikely friendship is blossoming into an unexpected romance.
